Khan vs Theophane. Really?

By Dan Henderson: In the British media there has been rumours flying around that Khan may face Ashley ‘Treasure’ Theophane and this rumour surprised me somewhat because it’s not a fight I would see Khan take because there wouldn’t be much money in involved for Khan for the risk.

It then dawned on me that Khan faced Paul McCloskey who wasn’t the biggest name and Theophane is a bigger name in America I also feel along with many other Brits that Theophane would be the sterner test.

I thought I would speak to Ashley and find out what ye had heard and this is what he told me: “I don’t ‘want’ the Khan fight. Loads of fight fans and media keep asking me. They seem to want it more than me. If I was offered it I would accept it. I wanna fight the best in the world and he is one of the best.”

I also ask what he thought of Khan vs Garcia and he responded by saying: ” Amir Khan made Danny Garcia look better than he really is but at the same time Amir Khan isn’t known for having a rock solid chin like myself.”

Ashley also informed me his next fight would be in North Carolina on the 24th of August and it will be on a World of Champions promotion. I asked if he was happy to fighting stateside again and he said: ” I’m very happy it has been 2yrs since I’ve fought there. I’m looking to fight there more often now.

So would you to see Khan fight Theophane?
